The B.h tltw.t for Foetal
Senator Spoonor ot Wisconsin has at
last succeeded In having reported , to
the senate hfo bill providing for the
regulation of Intcr-stato telegraphy by
the Intor-stnto commerce commission" , n
device to avoid disturbing the rule of
the existing telegraph monopoly.
Spooner is one of those patriots who fcur
that the government of the United
States will become more power
ful than any corporate monopoly
within its domain. Ho would rather
trust Jay Gould with the autocratic con
trol of the vital arteries of commercial
activity than trust that power with a
sovereign nation , acting through Its re
Having witnessed the force of Inves
tigating the oporatlonsof the telegraph
system by taking Dr. Green's version of
the methods of business over the pres
ent lines , and having hoard the remon
strances against postal telegraphy pro
cured by Western Union employes , Mr.
Spoonor has blossomed out as a reformer
by recommending , as a substitute for
postal telegraphy , a bill to place the
telegraph under the control of the inter
state commission. This is about what
might have been expected from that
quarter. Commissions have always
been the last refuge ot cor
porate mopopolies , whenever
they found themselves forced
to make concessions. To put the tele
graph system of the country under the
supervision of the national railroad
commission would bo a stupendous farce.
The commission has already moro than
its hands full in regulating the rail
roads. In fact , the commission has not
been able to cover , a tithe of the terri
tory which it Is expected to supervise ,
and thousands of complaints necessarily
have been pigeon-holed for want of
time to give them attention. To add to
Its complex duties' the regulation of
telegraph carriers would simply over
whelm the board with work which It Is
not competent to perform , and to which
it could devote no time without neg
lecting the business for which it was
As between regulating railroads and
the telegraph there is a wide difference.
The only point in which both systems are
analngous is fictitious capitalization. '
Telegraph companies , like the railroads ,
exact fixed charges from their patrons
upon millions of watered stocks that
have no better basis than the enormi
ties perpetrated by construction com
panies. Any attempt to regulate tele
graph tolls on the basis of the re
strictions of the inter-state commerce
law would be like applying the yard
measure to a commodity that is sold by
weight. The actual expense for trans
mitting a message from Washington to
San Francisco is no greater than it is to
send the same message from Washing
ton to Baltimore. Distance , which is
the controlling factor in railroad trans
portation , plays an Insignificant part in
computing the cost of transmission by
telegraph. One operator stationed at
each end of the line can transmit
messages just as readily over a circuit
of 8,000 miles as they can over a 'circuit
of ton miles. The cost of generating
electricity is but a trifle in computing
the operating expense of a telegraph
lino. The tolls are therefore not to be
gauged by distance or cost of re-hand
ling , as It would bo on a railroad. The
inter-state commission , when organized ,
was selected with reference to railroad
control. Its members have no practical
experience in the telegraph service ,
and nobody who lacks that experience
Is competent to supervise the manage
ment of the telegraph system.
Some of the Objections to It.
The objections to the now tariff hill
which develop as the public discussion
of that measure progresses are found tc
be numerous and important , and by nc
moans confined to those from whom op
position was expected. For example , c
democratic organ of Now York says ol
the bill that it will not receive the un
qualified approval of revenue reformers
for the reason that "It is the result ol
compromises which have boon carricc
further than can bo justified. " Tha
journal regards it as unfortunate tha
iron ore and coal were not put on the
free list , characterizing the duties 01
those articles , as "the most tyran
nical and unjust of the taxes.1
The fact that Congressman Scott
of Pennsylvania , whoso coal interests
torosts are very extensive , Is a mem
her of the ways and moans committee , ! !
naturally suggested as explaining th <
retention of the coal duty , while deference
once to the feelings of Alabama , Ten *
nessoo , Georgia and West Virginia i
hold to account for non-intorferonci
with iron ore and the generally ligh
hand laid on iron and its products. An
other evidence that local interests ha <
a considerable influence with the ma
jority of the committee is pointed oul
in the leniency shown in dealing wit !
the duties on sugar and rice. Nevertheless
tholess the Louisiana planters are re
ported'not to bo satisfied with the consideration
sidoration shown them In the bill , an <
the Carolina rico growers are expoctoi
to speak with no uncertain voice re
gariling the proposed reduction , sligh
though it is , of the duty on their prc
In putting certain sorts ot timber o
the free list this feature of the bill i
already encountering vigorous opposl
tlon from Alabama , whoso timber prc
duction is one of the most important ir
dustries of'tho state. This interest wi !
undoubtedly join hands with thai of th
northwest In opposing the free timbc
provision of tha bill. The democrat
from the wool growing-states are almo :
unanimously counted against the bil
and there is domooratlooppo5itionuls , (
to the reductions proposed on gloss an
pottery. No serious opposition wn.s o :
pocted from the woolen manufacturer ;
but petitions have been received i
Washington , signed by nearly n
of those manufacturers in the coui
try , stating that they are oppose
to putting wool on the free list and pn
for to take the chances as they are ui
dor the general protective system.
fur as tao republican revenue roformei
are- concerned those whoso oplnioi
have been sought find sudlclont objei
tlons in the bill to make their oppos
tlon certain. Thus , Nelson'ofMlnm
sola , thinks the farmer * should ha\
been considered to the extent ot eoii
slight tariff on wool and a greater reduc
tion made on woolen goods , while his
colleague , Mr , Lind , has thU fault to
find with the measure and the further
one that it jeopardizes the flax seed and
oil interest of his district , which Is a
very Important ono to the farmers he
represents , as It is Indeed to a very
large number of farmers of the north
ern states and territories.
Such are some oMho objections urged
against the new tariff bill , and It must
bo granted that they are not unim
portant. A candid examination of the
measure shows that it would not accom
plish all that is desirable toward remov
ing the inequalities under the existing
tariff , and that the benefits it promises
to the great farming interest of the
country , would be very nearly if not
wholly offset by removing the protection
that Interest now has on certain com
modities proposed to bo placed on the
free list. The bill unquestionably has
commendable features , but thcro are
many that cannot bo commended from "a
broad and national contemplation" ot
the subject , and these will undoubtedly
bo fatal to it.
The Song of Harmony.
Why should thcro be discord If both hon
estly work for the welfare ot the cltyl If , as
the BBB asserts , two-thirds of the members
of the Union club are members of the board
of trade , the utmost harmony should prevail
between the two bodies. The'ncglcct of cer
tain interests of the city , moro especially its
manufactures , by the board of trade , made
the Union club a necessity. The Republican
bollovrs that the organization of the latter
will add something inoro than its own weight
to the effort In behalf of the city. It will
arouse the board of trade to action , A llttlo
rivalry is sometimes a good thing , when
bodies arc working to the same end. Itcimb-
So the club had become a necessity
because the board of trade has neglected
the city's interests ! There is to bo no
rivalry , of course , but the board 'isv
snubbed and insulted at the very outset
by being taunted with indifference
toward industries which the club pro
poses to foster and stimulate. In other
words the two hundred and twenty
odd merchants and manufacturers who
constitute the board of trade are politely
informed that they as a body have
to give way to another organization ,
which proposes hereafter to take supreme
premo direction of all matters affecting
the industrial and commercial growth
of Omaha. This rivalry will , of course ,
IMJ good natured just as it always has
been , when bodies are working to the
same end , for instance when the lamb
that worked in harmony with the lion
found its way into the capacious stomach
of the king of beasts.
THE report that Mr. Chauncey 1. Fil-
ley , of St. Louis , is making himself con
spicuous In promoting the candidacy of
Senator Sherman , cannot be encourag
ing to the sincere friends of the senator
who may bo familiar with the political
history of Filloy. It Is moro than likely
that this small-bore politician is beck
ing to identify himself with the cause
of Senator Sherman without the invita
tion or approval of the senatorand if so
his self-imposed efforts should be known
for just what they are and moan. It
can bo said with absolute certainty that
Senator Sherman could make no greater
mistake than to form any sort of an
alliance with Filloy or men of his class
MR. RANDALL Is receiving some
warnings from the democratic organs
that ho must not obstruct tariff reform
in the house unless ho is prepared' to
bo kicked out of the party. Mr. Ran
dall has heard so much , of this sort oi
talk that it has lost its influence upon
him , if it over had any. There was n
great deal of it before the present house
was organized , but Randall "got there
just the same. " Ho will undoubtedly
bo found occupying pretty much the
same attitude that ho did in the last
congress , with the probable result ol
do/eating tariff reform according to the
views of the democratic majority , and it
is safe to say that so long us ho remains
in public life ho will continue to wear
the democratic label.
THE majority of the ways and means
committee yesterday submitted to the
full committee the promised bill for re
ducing internal revenue taxation. The
measure provides for cutting off $20-
000,000 of revenue by repealing certain
taxes on tobacco , and $ -5,000,000 by the
removal of special taxes on spirits. Or
the assumption that the tariff bill sub
mitted would reduce the revenue to the
amount estimated by its frumors , that
with the removal of internal taxes provided -
vided for in the bill submitted yester
day would effect a total reduction ol
$78,000,000. It would perhaps not be
expedient to cut down the revenues U
a larger amount for the present.

Upon the suggestion of Mayor Broatch the
whole subject will be laid before the board
of trade at its next mooting , when probably a
